Veteran right-hander Roy Oswalt should be back in the major leagues at some point in early-to-mid June.

According to Thomas Harding of MLB.com, Oswalt allowed just one hit — a leadoff bunt — over five innings Saturday in an outing at extended spring training against a group of Brewers minor leaguers. He struck out nine batters and did not issue a walk.

Oswalt signed a minor league contract with the Rockies on May 2 that will carry a prorated $2.3 million salary if he climbs onto the 25-man roster.

Oswalt will report this week to the Double-A Tulsa Drillers for four or five tuneup starts. If those go well, he’ll then head to Denver.

    I’ll take the over on a 5.50 ERA in Colorado.

    The Drillers could really use the help. Sheesh.

    That will probably end up being his strongest outing of the year.
